    "Your quest should be your inner self , that door, that only you have the key"  or something simlar by Prem Rawat Maharaji see on youtube with his famous "sunset" clip.

    Thanks BM,

    I'm 59yo so Bob Marley gave me those great songs One love and No woman no cry. So many more to. He was one of those artists that placed your mind in a floating place of peace and happiness and loving care.

    Also Google Maharaji the perfect instrument.  My second favourite of his.

    Great people and we are great by honouring them with our admiration.

    Tony WK

    Hello Everyone

    My favourite quote is All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke 1729-1797.

    I feel quite passionate about this. It just isn't enough to not engage in wrong doing. We need to be psoitively good and positively oppose wrong.

    good one white rose, one of my favourites too and always reminds me of my personal favourite by Hunter S Thompson  ''He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man'' . that one has helped me pull myself into line on many occasions.

    Whatnow, That is a powerful quote.

    May I ask how you interpret it?

    My first impression is building strength and not caring about others or the way they treat you / think about you, in order to be happier.

    My second impression is literally becoming a beast/monster to push the world away..

    What are your thoughts?

    A good one leading into Christmas -

    thanks tragic dogma

    im glad you like the quote, ive recalled it often over the years to help keep myself on track. I guess it is open to interpretation. for me the meaning is closer to your second one you mention in your post. I used substances heavily for a long time to deal with my depression and anxiety and as an addict did things I regret, knowing this as well as knowing I was avoiding facing my problems eventually forced me to see that I was avoiding "manning up" by essentially making a "beast" of myself.

    You think anxiety is bad? You should try depression.

    I may be mentally ill, but I'm not stupid.

    You call that a job? Now this is a job!

    Religion is an opiate for the masses and I have always been fond of drugs.

    I forgot what I was going to say, oh yeah now I remember.

    It is better to have hated and won, than to have loved and lost. No , it is better to have lost 6-0 than never to never have played tennis at all.

    It is better to be loved than to love but don't get attached, it might vanish one day.

    Just because you're unhappy today, doesn't mean you won't be unhappy tomorrow.

    Don't stereotype me. I don't look like Abba members.
